Temptation... It's a killer!!!!!

Good morning! We are doing a study of the book of James in our Sunday school class and it is deal with some real life stuff! Are you dealing with trials rights now? If your mature, then you are patient during them. Yeah, I struggle with that one. I struggle with being patient! Sometimes the trials are testing on the outside and other times they are temptation on the inside. Trials can be tests from God or temptations from the devil. Let's dig into the good stuff and see what it can show us.......

Bible Verse: James 1:13-15 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. 

Ok, when satan sends temptation our way, it can be fueled by our fallen nature. It also matters where are heart is at the time. What state our heart is in. We must remember, what we take in our minds goes into our hearts. And eventually comes our our mouths or in our actions. So, the condition of our hearts is so very important in dealing with trials and temptations! Think on that today and think about what we are taking in our minds. We must be smart and realize we are battling an enemy that seeks to destroy us. Dig into the Word this week! God bless!
